    Couple FMIC questions before I pull the trigger.

    Hey OP! SO short answer..... an aftermarket fmic will help primarily with charge temps and will help with keeping lower charge temps and thus more timing maintaining power and lowering quarter mile times (unknown amount). But stock FMIC temps on a 0-130 MPH pull would start at 75F and end at a steamy 218F with 6 degrees of timing pull. Ambient was 69F (ha). Same day installed an ultimate performance intercooler did a 0-130 pull. Started at 81F ending at 147F, And 0 timing pull. Ambient was 78F. So yes it helps Long answer: To keep production costs down, oftentimes the OEM intercooler is fairly small. It will typically get the job done, but as soon as you start increasing boost pressure or adding bolt-on modifications, the OEM intercooler can hold you back. Adding a larger intercooler without any tuning will not really add any power. The charge air temperature will be lower resulting in denser air, but the larger intercooler can add a slight amount of drag which can somewhat negate any power gains. The real magic of installing an aftermarket turbo intercooler is the ability to run a more aggressive tune without running into detonation. A larger intercooler is also less susceptible to heat soaking, which means you can stay out on the drag strip or race track longer without losing power. Do Intercoolers Add Horsepower? To put it simply: no, a turbo intercooler will not really add any horsepower to your car. It does, however, give you much more wiggle room for a more aggressive tune without the risk of harming your engine. It should be noted, however, that too large of an intercooler can actually do more harm than good. If you have an extremely massive intercooler, you will cause more turbocharger lag and more drag inside the whole system. FAQs: Will a Bigger Intercooler Increase Power? – Without proper tuning, an intercooler by itself won’t increase power by any substantial amount, because your OEM ECU tune may not increase boost or ignite timing when it sees safer charge air temperatures. What Does an Intercooler Do? – The job of your intercooler is simple – cool the hot compressed air coming from your turbocharger before it enters your engine. Will it Decrease Boost Pressure? – Depending on your application, the size of the turbocharger, and the size of the intercooler, it’s possible to see decreased boost pressure after installing an aftermarket intercooler. Do I Need a Tune? – Technically, no you don’t need an aftermarket tune with an aftermarket intercooler for the majority of applications, however, we highly recommend installing an ECU tune or piggyback system to capitalize on your lower charge air temperatures. Luckily you will almost never run into this problem as spatial constraints will force you to run an intercooler that typically isn’t too much larger than the factory unit.

    My Stage 3 turbos are in!

    i would steer clear of LMS like the plague, been down your road, im going to say that you will dyno about 470~485awhp with supporting mods on E. best of luck
  9. Hello and good day ford enthusiasts! I have been working specially with Stephen Dunn (owner and operator of AKD built performance incorporated). He has reached out to support one of our own in support of providing a superior ITCC rear coupling for your all wheel drive differential and a Torsen limited slip differential. I (AKA Colin Bert on Facebook) have post pictures of these too gain support and providing these new products to the market place. They are currently working on a new billet coupler case that will in compass the new clutches and mechanical cam assembly for your electro-magnetic viscous coupler. Viscous coupler has 65% increase in friction surface area, friction material will be a Molybdenum blend material with 600% over stock torque holding!!!! Additionally ADK has designed a new Torsen rear limited slip differential that will work with Fusion, MKZ, MKX, Taurus SHO, Edge Sport, Explorer and MKX However we believe there to be Many more vehicles with the same compatibility within Ford and Lincoln. And believe it or not, some Chevys. We wanted to debut these parts here so you could see them however not currently for sale but will be tested with Special_K & SNMJim (Colin and his dad) on his edge sport. Follow him on IG @fastest_edge For product testing. Here are some pictures for your viewing.
